Ivanka Trump’s Unwanted Clothes Are Being Recycled For A Very Good Cause

Have old Ivanka Trump brand clothes you can no longer wear because you angry at the current administration?

We’ve got good news for you. A clothing drive called “Make America Rational Again” (MARA), created by the fashion collective “The Rational Dress Society,” is collecting old Ivanka Trump clothing, and recycling them into pink and gold jumpsuits. Sales for the apparel will go directly to organizations advocating for fair labor practices in the United States (perhaps because, as The Washington Post reported, workers in China are being paid $62 a week, 60 hours a week, to make Ivanka Trump brand clothing).

According to thredUP, a clothes resale company, there has been a 223% increase in customers purging their Trump wear — which just might mean we need to prep ourselves for an upcoming jumpsuit revolution.
